Cinco de Mayo Recipes and a Cash Giveaway!




In our family, we love any excuse for a party.  And Cinco de Mayo is one of those excuses!  We are living full time in our RV this year and I didn’t want this fun Mexican style holiday to get away from me without trying some new recipes on the grill!  Thanks to Old El Paso, Avocados from Mexico, and Publix, I pulled off the ultimate grilled #PublixFiesta combo-  Mexican Grilled Chicken and Avocados!

Oh, and I also have some great downloadable coupons for you and even a cash giveaway!  It’s a party, right?

Believe it or not, my RV does actually come with a stove and oven, but I love any excuse to cook on the grill.  That added smokey flavor makes things taste wonderful.  Oh and there is the fact that the husband insists on being the one to cook on the grill.  Who is going to argue with that?

So, I perused Publix and picked up an Old El Paso Hard/Soft Shell Taco Kit, Old El Paso Traditional Refried Beans, Old El Paso Mild Taco Sauce, and some yummy Avocados from Mexico!  Need some great downloadable coupons for these items and more?  Be sure to check the Old El Paso website!

Anyway, let’s talk about the food!
